    Well. I came for the cutesy cover and EW premise of a ?romantic comedy? and then the premise on GR mentions a possible school shooting and I was confused. I liked Rose and Grant well enough. There were a lot of characters here and they?re all clichés. I didn?t feel like I ...

    Rating: 3.5 Stars For almost four years Rose had been Grant's "person", but then she abruptly walked away from the paper, journalism, and Grant too. The search for the truth about the gunman was their last chance to work on a story together, and maybe their last shot at friendship ...

    At first glance The Last Best Story looked like a fluffy summer contemporary but surprisingly it turned out to be a more complex story about gun violence and school safety. I enjoyed the story and I liked most of the characters, except Grant. He behaved like a jerk a lot of the times, ...

    The format of this was challenging for me and got a bit in the way of the story. It was a happened in one night story about a lockdown at the prom, interspersed with flashbacks, told in a third-person omniscient style. It wasn't really a thriller, it wasn't really romance, and I was...

    I read this in one lazy day. It was quite an enjoyable read, though wasn?t what I was expecting. ...

    This book made me want to read and write YA again! So good it hurts! I felt every emotion possible while reading The Last Best Story. The banter, the relationships, and the little mysteries swelling up throughout the novel had me finishing the book in two days, even though, early on, I...

    A little too slow and for not much. Rose has quit the Gazette and decided not to go the college she'd been aiming for, she's also let go of her long-time crush, editor-in-chief Grant. It's been months and now it's prom, but Grant is not her date. When her best friend's boyfriend get...

    Rose and Grant have been best friends since the start of high school and have worked side by side on their high school newspaper, the Gazette. In Maggie Lehrman?s THE LAST BEST STORY, the two are now at their senior year prom and Rose and Grant are no longer communicating. For some i...

    I received this novel a while ago and because of that when I finally did pick it up I decided not to read the synopsis and go into the novel blind. I figured from the front cover (which is beautiful and cutesy and colourful) that this novel would be an allover easy read. This novel def...

    I just stayed up all reading this book in one sitting. It might be the lack of sleep talking, but this book was FULL of deplorables. I'm not talking flawed characters, I mean absolutely worthless human beings. I thought I was reading a Rom-com based on what I'd heard about the book, bu...

    I wasn't a fan of the cheating on both of their parts. He was dating someone and she was too. I did like that she realized it and try to focus on other things. This is a last story that they end up doing and figuring out their love for each other. ...

    'The Last Best Story' by Maggie Lehrman is provocative and intriguing, bringing a shadow of a doubt to the truth-finding process and how life throws curveballs that can throw one's life completely off-kilter. Rose and Grant have been friends and newspaper buddies since freshman year...

    A DRC was provided for a fair and honest review by Edelweiss. Would a high school junior really say to his vice-principal and future writer of college recommendation letters, "Mr. Hackenstratt, this is a super fun fight, but are you going to censor the paper or what?" If you can sus...

    The Last Best Story is a YA novel that focuses on two main characters - Rose and Grant - and their inability to admit their true feelings for each other. With Grant as the high school newspaper's editor-in-chief and Rose as the newspaper's star reporter, the novel is billing itself as ...

    This was such a cute story! I didn't like it quite as much as I thought after reading the blurb, but it was still pretty darn good. The journalism aspect was particularly interesting to me as I went to journalism school. All the deadlines and newspaper work nights brought back lots of ...

    As someone who worked on a high school publication, this book was so incredibly relatable and real to me. I was able to relate to the characters and the stress they felt regarding both their publication and deciding whether a publication was the most important part of high school. I ...

    ***A huge thanks to the author for sending this to me through an Instagram giveaway*** This was definitely a ?don?t judge a book by its cover? instance! The contemporary, sweet looking cover made me think of a wedding or prom book with a swoony romance, but it was actually a c...

    3.5 stars I'm conflicted on this one because part of me wants to love it because His Girl Friday is one of my favourite movies and another part of me doesn't want to love it because it was trying too hard to emulate the movie, particularly with the character of Grant. Everything abo...

    I received this book as an advanced reader's copy and this was not a book I was expecting from the cover at all. This book reminded me of Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult in the setting and plot but accept it reflects on the story of Rose and how she was the top reporter from her schoo...

    ?He was the thing she could chase forever and never catch, like the perfect story.? 2.5 stars If it?s a cute fluffy story your looking for, then don?t let this cover fool you. The Last Best Story is a unfortunate tale of a annoying male character who is self centred a...

    Great story! There are two levels to the story - the will-they-or-won't-they romance between the two main characters as their senior year comes to a close, which I expected, and the incident at prom part which was completely unexpected and fascinating! The story jumps around in time...

    2.5 stars. My main issue with this book is that it presents a serious situation in not a very serious way, and that made for an uncomfortable read for me. I wasn't drawn to any of the characters and found myself questioning the decisions they made. The compelling force the led me to fi...

    What a charming book. I love a contemporary romantic comedy and I definitely see the parallels to His Girl Friday - especially in the witty banter. It makes me want to go back and revisit the film. A great read. ...

    The Last Best Story is a YA novel that focuses on two main characters - Rose and Grant - and their inability to admit their true feelings for each other. With Grant as the high school newspaper's editor-in-chief and Rose as the newspaper's star reporter, the novel is billing itself as ...

    Rating: 3.5 Stars For almost four years Rose had been Grant's "person", but then she abruptly walked away from the paper, journalism, and Grant too. The search for the truth about the gunman was their last chance to work on a story together, and maybe their last shot at friendship ...

    At first glance The Last Best Story looked like a fluffy summer contemporary but surprisingly it turned out to be a more complex story about gun violence and school safety. I enjoyed the story and I liked most of the characters, except Grant. He behaved like a jerk a lot of the times, ...

    The format of this was challenging for me and got a bit in the way of the story. It was a happened in one night story about a lockdown at the prom, interspersed with flashbacks, told in a third-person omniscient style. It wasn't really a thriller, it wasn't really romance, and I was...

    I read this in one lazy day. It was quite an enjoyable read, though wasn?t what I was expecting. ...

    This book made me want to read and write YA again! So good it hurts! I felt every emotion possible while reading The Last Best Story. The banter, the relationships, and the little mysteries swelling up throughout the novel had me finishing the book in two days, even though, early on, I...

    A little too slow and for not much. Rose has quit the Gazette and decided not to go the college she'd been aiming for, she's also let go of her long-time crush, editor-in-chief Grant. It's been months and now it's prom, but Grant is not her date. When her best friend's boyfriend get...

    Rose and Grant have been best friends since the start of high school and have worked side by side on their high school newspaper, the Gazette. In Maggie Lehrman?s THE LAST BEST STORY, the two are now at their senior year prom and Rose and Grant are no longer communicating. For some i...

    I received this novel a while ago and because of that when I finally did pick it up I decided not to read the synopsis and go into the novel blind. I figured from the front cover (which is beautiful and cutesy and colourful) that this novel would be an allover easy read. This novel def...

    I just stayed up all reading this book in one sitting. It might be the lack of sleep talking, but this book was FULL of deplorables. I'm not talking flawed characters, I mean absolutely worthless human beings. I thought I was reading a Rom-com based on what I'd heard about the book, bu...

    I wasn't a fan of the cheating on both of their parts. He was dating someone and she was too. I did like that she realized it and try to focus on other things. This is a last story that they end up doing and figuring out their love for each other. ...

    'The Last Best Story' by Maggie Lehrman is provocative and intriguing, bringing a shadow of a doubt to the truth-finding process and how life throws curveballs that can throw one's life completely off-kilter. Rose and Grant have been friends and newspaper buddies since freshman year...

    A DRC was provided for a fair and honest review by Edelweiss. Would a high school junior really say to his vice-principal and future writer of college recommendation letters, "Mr. Hackenstratt, this is a super fun fight, but are you going to censor the paper or what?" If you can sus...

    The Last Best Story is a YA novel that focuses on two main characters - Rose and Grant - and their inability to admit their true feelings for each other. With Grant as the high school newspaper's editor-in-chief and Rose as the newspaper's star reporter, the novel is billing itself as ...

    This was such a cute story! I didn't like it quite as much as I thought after reading the blurb, but it was still pretty darn good. The journalism aspect was particularly interesting to me as I went to journalism school. All the deadlines and newspaper work nights brought back lots of ...

    As someone who worked on a high school publication, this book was so incredibly relatable and real to me. I was able to relate to the characters and the stress they felt regarding both their publication and deciding whether a publication was the most important part of high school. I ...

    ***A huge thanks to the author for sending this to me through an Instagram giveaway*** This was definitely a ?don?t judge a book by its cover? instance! The contemporary, sweet looking cover made me think of a wedding or prom book with a swoony romance, but it was actually a c...

    3.5 stars I'm conflicted on this one because part of me wants to love it because His Girl Friday is one of my favourite movies and another part of me doesn't want to love it because it was trying too hard to emulate the movie, particularly with the character of Grant. Everything abo...

    Great story! There are two levels to the story - the will-they-or-won't-they romance between the two main characters as their senior year comes to a close, which I expected, and the incident at prom part which was completely unexpected and fascinating! The story jumps around in time...

    2.5 stars. My main issue with this book is that it presents a serious situation in not a very serious way, and that made for an uncomfortable read for me. I wasn't drawn to any of the characters and found myself questioning the decisions they made. The compelling force the led me to fi...
